Sleek Saturday - Monaco Palette

I’m very excited to be participating in Liloo’s Sleek Saturday for the first time! Head on over to Le petit jardin de liloo to see who else is involved this week.

For my first Sleek Saturday, I decided to use the Monaco palette. As a hardened make-up junkie, I am quite ashamed to admit that I swatched this palette and then never even looked at it again until now. Luckily, I have now found that I actually really like the palette, and have several looks in mind for the future. The matte shades in this palette are really fab – buttery smooth and very pigmented. This is quite unusual for mattes, as they are notoriously difficult to blend, but not so with this palette!

  3. absolutely gorgeous!!! blown away. this blue on blue is spot on. I *need* to try this. So far I have failed any blue look I've tried and I can't wait to see if this would suit me xx Thank you so much for joining me this week. Unfortunately I am having a break from sleek saturday for a while: I've run out of palettes to use and I am quite worn out by it all frankly haha but missy_ellie_uk (@missy_ellie_uk)is continuing the series, so you might want to do something with her? xx
